To bad it crashes every windows server. I can't believe after all this time valve released an update that did this??

Linux servers are ok after editing a few cvars thou, no word on a win fix.

I think its really dumb it takes them this long to code this little ammount of new information.


I mean cmon, they could have had these 'upgrades' in the initial release, but no, hey everyone, wait ****ing 1 more year and we will have all the classes released, just in time that everyone is bored with the game (nana2) :thumbdwn: :headexplode:


booo to you developers, boo to you, and goodnight.

Must be the price we pay to be able to embed youtube videos in posts... for some reason I've only seen it in this thread.

The best thing about the update is

Added FOV slider to Options | Video | Advanced for all games (moved there from TF2ís multiplayer options)

People have already unlocked all the achievements with a simple command in the console. Cheats don't even need to be enabled.

Typing achievement_unlock_all gives you everything. Works to unlock achievements in portal and episode 2 as well.

It's always been there as far as I know. Though when you type it...it doesn't auto-appear, so you'd never know it exists. Unless you do of course ;)

Great option for achievement-haters, they can unlock them once and don't care about them anymore

Note: Goldrush is pretty big, haven't gotten the chance to play it as my ISP is having trouble and getting insanely high pings. :(

Medics: Most people were medic in the 2-3 servers I joined. amusing stuff.

Played goldrush, absolutely fantastic map and incredibly fun. Sadly, thanks to the 90,000 medics running around, the balance of the round was pretty screwed up. There were 2 heavies being healed by 4-5 medics escorting the cart, so it was incredibly hard to set anything up. Oh well, in a few days, this thing will blow over. One crib though; The cart can be really overwhelming at times since it's always healing you and giving you ammo, I've noticed that you can really dominate people as Heavies. The map favors heavies.

Right now, pretty much everyone wants to get the medic achievement and thus is running around as medic. Problem is, 90% of them can't play the class for ****. So every round, you have 6 worthless medics running around that can't heal or attack properly. :thumbdwn:

Yeah the map is really cool but the number of people who don't know how to play medic is impressive...I've counted up to 8 medics on my team this morning !
And I wont comment about those who cheat by typing a command in the console to unlock everything...
Oh well...I think that I'll play pyro for a few days, before switching to my medic ^^

Too late. Pretty much every player applied the command to get the unlocks. :thumbdwn:

I played Goldrush for a little bit, not bad of a gametype. So I know I'm late to the party but what is the deal with the character customization?

Get achievements>you get new weapons.

36 achievements for medic, plus 3 achievement achievements. Milestone 1, 2 and 3.

Complete 12 achievements and you get:
The Blutsaugher - A version of needle gun that gives you health when you shoot others. Doesn't crit.

C12 achievements and you get:
The Kritzkrieg - A heal gun that doesn't make you invunrable when you uber, but it gives you 100% crits for 10s.

Complete all 36 and you get:
The Ubersaw - A bonesaw that can fill your uber meter with 4 shots. Each shot fills it 25%.

To equip the newly acquired item, Press esc>character setup>medic>pick a weapon and click change.

So far I only really like the blutsaughter.

But somewhat being nitpicky... I wish it looked cooler. Like the regular gun but with blood inside the cannister or something neat. Looks like of bland right now. Just my odd critique :)

TF2 has gotten a little boring here lately . . .
